Bail granted for alleged murder

In 2020, 13 men were charged with murder and multiple counts of malicious acts with intent following a brawl in a Zillmere park in which weapons were used.

Our client was refused bail by the Supreme Court. Following that refusal, our client was referred to Alan Phillips of our office. The defendant was charged following an extensive police operation in which hundreds of people provided statements, and hundreds of hours of recordings were seized and disclosed by police. Telephone location data and complex DNA evidence was all part of a significant Crown case.

The client had spent nearly 3 years on remand and his matter remained before the Magistrates Court. A further Supreme Court bail application was made. Despite the strength of the evidence against Alan Phillips' client, and the risk of a vendetta attack, the Court was persuaded to grant bail. No surety was required by the Court despite the inherent risk of those charged with murder to flee the jurisdiction. The matter remains before the Courts and is contested.

If you or anyone you know requires legal assistance, do not hesitate to contact our office on 07 3180 0158 or 0403846238.
